METHODS OF MADNESS.
by Ray Garton.
Signed Limited Edition.
REVIEW: This is the first fiction collection from Garton...His writing is compelling...particularly when he explores psychopathologies. A fascination with the effects of sexual repression figures importantly in several of the six tales. In "Active Member," a man is dissociated from and terrorized by his own sexuality. "Something Kinky," the most polished story here, is a Hitchcockian account of a man who, after allowing himself to stray one night following years of an unsatisfying marriage, is inadvertently drawn into blackmail and murder. In "Sinema," a boy being raised by strict Seventh Day Adventist grandparents is befriended by an older man who has a VCR and an extensive library of illicit tapes. Other stories concern a radical therapy for child abusers; the revenge a man's body fat takes on the woman who has rejected him; and an account of bloody poetic justice.-- Publishers Weekly.
